Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Strong on technology, it has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2017. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Audi offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.
